Description

This work examines the economist John Kenneth Galbraith through the unique lense of political theory. Waligorski illustrates the continuing link between politics and economics in American political discourse by locating Galbraith in a framework of liberal and conservative theory, controversy, alternatives, and policy. By analyzing Galbraith's complex arguments, Waligorski addresses important issues about the content and nature of American political thought and policy in the twentieth century.
